The Rwandan capital Kigali is undergoing a transformation. President Paul Kagame calls it "Vision 2020" - the development of a modern city. But many people are being resettled to make way for the project.
Rwandan President Paul Kagame is poised to win his third term in office. A constitutional amendment allows him to stay in power until 2034. Some say he's a despot; others praise him for his accomplishments.
Burundi's president, Pierre Nkurunziza, has said he won't run again in 2020. The surprise statement follows the enactment of a new constitution that could see him rule until 2034.
Rwandans are heading to the polls on Friday, but there won't be any surprises: President Paul Kagame is expected to win by a mile. Still, opposition candidate Frank Habineza has also been trying to mobilize support.
It's no surprise that Rwandan President Paul Kagame won the election with 98 percent of the vote, since the outcome had been known long before electors went to the polls, writes Andrea Schmidt.
